PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) - The Pass Christian School District officially has a new superintendent set to take office.
Approved by the school board the last week of May, Dr. Carla Evers signed her contract Thursday afternoon.
For the past 11 years, Evers has served as the Director of Instructional Programs for the Gulfport School District.
In her first interview, Evers says the biggest challenge she faces is to not only maintain the success of the school district, but to also build on the success.
"The main thing that I need to make sure I accomplish when I come here is to maintain that commitment to excellence. It would be a misstep for any new leader to come into a district that's high performing and just want to bring in all your ideas, and turn everything over and change things just because you have the keys," said Evers. "I want to know what makes Pass Christian the best and learn how I fit into that system."
Evers officially takes office July 1.
